I am exhausted the first couple of days on my period. My back and hips hurt, migranes. It just sucks. I take an iron supplement but it has little to no affect. I can deal with the back and hip pain but the exhaustion is the absolute worst. I work full time and go to school full time I don't have time for this. I hate my period.

I am the same way and now I have 2 small children. During my period and even a few days before it, I get so tired that I barely can keep my eyes open. It's anemia. Take an iron supplement. I do everyother day because too much iron can cause serious constipation. you can buy iron suppelments right at wal mart or your local drug store.

i get sooooo tired after mine I am anemic too but i get tired like exhaustion its hard to keep a job Iam on day 6 and I was tired all dayyyy its so frustrating

i get tiered when i have a period since my opperation i have weird periods they are never on time some times i even miss one im almost certainly always at least 1-2 weeks late the first year after my opp it was like 3 months in between the said just because your an overy short doesn't mean you'll miss a period obviously they were wrong :) . my addvice is just sleep when you can eat lots of chocolate and pray that it ends soon soz i got nothing else :(
